Cameron Toshack's name in the frame as possible future Swans Manager

Commentators point to Under 23s coach in wake of Potter departure news

Speculation about a successor to Graham Potter as Swansea City Manager is continuing, following news over the weekend that Potter is set to leave for struggling Premiership side Brighton.

Its after the Seagulls agreed to pay for permission to hold talks with Potter after sacking Chris Hughton as manager.

Swansea Sound's Swans commentator and pundit Anthony O'Connell says Cameron Toshack is one obvious choice:

"We've always been looking for someone who plays the Swansea way, knows the club inside out, knows the players and can work within the limitations that there are here at Swansea City.

"I think there are a couple of candidates for me, clearly Cameron Toshack is at the club; he's been there twenty years, he's brought many of these players through the Under 23s"


The club's financial situation and transfer decisions have been cited by fans as among the reasons for the decision, though so far there has been no statement from the club.

And there could be more trouble to come.

O'Connell said Chairman Trevor Birch had a difficult few months ahead:

"Its a huge battle. He's keeping his head down, saying very little and that might be the best approach from his point of view - he doesn't want to become too much of a person to people because he is going to have to make some very hard decisions behind the scenes. A couple of players have already been released in the last couple of days."

O'Connell continued:

"There will be more wheeling and dealing in the summer. Swansea will have to sell probably three or four of their better players in order to reduce the debt that the club owns."
